10 Crafty Ideas for Old Books

tutorial  |  October 19th 2011  |  0 Comment

making paper bunting from book pages

Old books can be an excellent eco-friendly source for paper crafters. Book crafting can also be a bit controversial, so take care when you’re choosing what books you want to cut up and craft with. Are you holding a vintage treasure or a book that might delight someone else from cover to cover? If the book is still usable, you’re better off leaving it at the thrift store for someone else to discover and cherish. The best books for crafting are ones that have seen better days. Maybe the pages are starting to yellow, it’s missing some pages, or the cover is in tatters.

If you’re an avid thrifter, it’s easy as pie to find well-loved books to craft with. Have you amassed a collection of books that need a crafty makeover?
